As MVNOs they have contacts with the operators, virgin with tmobile and tesco with O2 but any change in ownership would allow the respective MVNOs to get out of the contract and use a different network, so i doubt there would be much difference in price in the short time. Although the register mentions in the article this maybe a reason why they have decided to do a 50 : 50 merger so the change in ownership clause does not become an issue.
Yea nokia do just that with there Itunes syncing on the mac. Nokia multimedia Transfer is a small program that reads the xml files from iTunes and syncs with them with a S60 phone.
Yep thats one problem with using OSX on a portable divice. Unlike other OSes that have been built from the ground up for mobile use, such as symbian and windows mobile, OSX seems to use to much memory or cannot perform multitasking efficiently. I have a nokia N95 8GB so spec wise it is similar to the iPhone, i run that sometimes with 5 different applications at one time and have never experiencedÂout of memory errors and rarely experienced slow downs. Even symbians precursor EPOC had full multitasking.
Werid, symbian is the biggest selling smartphone OS. Both windows or OSX dont touch it in sales with 70% market share.
Some of the newer nokias also allow charing over Mini USB. Think the N96 does.
What they are doing wrongly is breaking the human rights act. A European law which dictates that no person can be extradited to a country that their human rights will be violated i.e the death penalty.
